Christmas Memories

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year. The boys had fun and enjoyed being held by all of the family. This of course led to issues when it was just me at home again, attempting to get them back on a routine, but I digress. We were fortunate enough to be able to stay home all day and everyone came to us. We didn't have to worry about taking the babies out to 3 different places to visit all of our parents. We had Christmas with my dad and step mom first, my mom came over next, and we finished off the day with James' family. We were so blessed with all of the fantastic's always nice to get boxes of diapers and containers of baby formula when you go through it twice as fast!!!!!! Thank you to everyone!

Saturday was James' 28th birthday. We spent the early afternoon at home then went to a movie with his family and dinner with his family and mine. Papaw & Mamaw (my dad & stepmom) watched the boys during the movie, met us at the restaurant so we could all have dinner together, then took them home after cake & presents so that we could have a night to ourselves. That's what James asked for as his birthday present. It was hard because it was my first night away from them, but it was nice to be able to sleep without sleeping light enough to hear the monitor. Of course we were up by 8 but we were able to get tons of laundry done and put away!

Here are some pictures of our weekend.
